KEVIN WAS WOEFULLY PREPARED FOR THE POLITICS OF LIFE...
As Kevin began life, and then entered his teenage years, he experienced a lot of what can only be defined as politics, as many of us do. However, he continued to wear his heart on his sleeve throughout those years and into his mid-20s, but the burden was heavy. Like it or not, Kevin was going to have to accept the notion that politics wasn’t just something you heard about or saw on the nightly news, but an intrinsic part of his everyday life.
So, in that key moment of unfortunate acceptance, he turned his eye to seeing as much of the politics in his own actions and life as he could, as well as watching the behavior and words of others. Once this practice became a daily routine, he was amazed at how the forms of our governmental politics were really born and evolved from how we engage and do business with one another on Main Street, U.S.A., not just in the White House.
“A picture is worth 1,000 words…
but a word can be a whole new picture.” — Kevin E. West
